    This could be fun considering the action moments in Agent Carter.

    "Carol is really meant to be a soldier and a commander, and also a diplomat," said Amanat. "We're really trying to build up this space complex and this space world. You'll really feel like there's an extension of the Avengers world into space, but not necessarily lost out in the Guardians of the Galaxy cosmos. It's rooted in Earth but also an extension into the galaxy."

    When asked about Captain Marvel taking up a mission similiar to the Marvel organization S.W.O.R.D., Amanat confirmed that it will not be around in the post-Secret Wars universe.
    Taken from other articles about this.

    Anyways I'm glad she'll be more tied to Earth but I'm sad there is no Sword or Abigail Brand in the ANAD Marvel (makes me wonder if this is spoilery for Secret Wars Seige series...)

    Anyways, sounds like this series has lots of potential. Though I wonder how long tv show runners will hang around on a comic...

    This Carol sounds like a younger 616 Carol (but not much younger) who ends up in a role like 1610 Carol. Interesting...

    I hope she'll be able to visit her Earth friends, at least Jessica Drew, I love their interactions.
    Current Pull List (updated for ANAD): Star Wars □ Darth Vader □ Lando □ Chewbacca □ Kanan □ uh... alot of ANAD but I still have decided what yet, lol

    Another #1.

    At least Anka won't be on the X-Books anymore.

    Do you think female hero when you see this drawing? It looks like a 20 something frat guy with that hair spiked in the front.

    This premise sounds good but so did Carol in space. We'll just have to see if this run will have fewer ignored opportunities and bad plots as the previous one...

    Not what I expected (though I did say there was a chance of an out-of-left-field writer), but am pretty happy with this, at least tentatively. I really enjoyed Agent Carter, and Anka looks like a good fit artistically. So, I'll definitely be picking it up. My only concern is that the writers are coming from TV rather than comics, but that's not been too much of a problem for others.

    Don't be sad. There's still female heroes out there you can fap to...

    There's nothing wrong with that hairstyle. I know lots of people who have something similar, and as countless people have pointed out (including the new creative team in the Fast Company article), long hair would get in your way and would be extra-problematic in zero gravity.

    I'm interested in this series, mainly for the idea of Captain Marvel as the new person in charge of alien encounters replacing SWORD and for Kris Anka's art is great to.

    I never saw Agent Carter so I have no idea how they will do story wise. But other then that they have my attention.

    I don't mind the hair tbh. It's better than that mullet she just had at least. Bonus points if they never use that helmet again.
    I also like that he muted the blue of her costume a bit. Those colors clashed a bit too much for my taste.

    That said the other adjustments are terrible and unecessarry. What's with the footwear ? And the gloves ? What she had before was sleeker.
